    Hi Nelson
    Glad you backed up!

    So the install went OK until you tried to start up? or did the blue screen come during the install?

    The only thing you can do is re-install.

    What machine are you trying to install on?
    Memory size?
    Hard drive size?

Were you updating to Leopard from Tiger using an upgrade install? This was a common issue caused by APE (Application Performance Enhancer) a third party plugin for Mac OS X. The solution around it is to do an archive and install which will remove APE while retaining all of your data and programs. The only things reset are system configurations (Wifi passwords etc.).
Good luck

Trying to install HP photo smart c7180 on a mac and when clicking on the install icon a message window says power pc applications not supported


What version of system are you using on your mac, it is probably snow leopard (10.6) or lion (10.7). In snow leopard you can run powerpc applications but you need to install the part of the system that runs rosetta however in lion you can not run powerpc applications at all. This web page tells you how to instal rosetta on snow leopard http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/article/snow_leopard_installing_rosetta/ This webpage at hp will also give you some information http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02911238&cc=uk&dlc=en&lc=en&os=219&product=1153754&sw_lang= Hope this helps.

Hi, Went to the Mac store to upgrade to Snow Leopard and was told my OS was "way too Old to upgrade to Snow Leopard!" Sorry, I'm a numbskull when it comes to these things. Figured as long as...


Apple recommends that if you wish to go from 10.4 to 10.6 then you should purchase the 10.6 Box Set.

System Requirements to run Snow Leopard:
  • Mac computer with an Intel processor
  • 1GB of memory
  • 5GB of available disk space
  • DVD drive for installation
Snow Leopard Installation Instructions:
  1. Just insert the DVD in the optical drive.
  2. Restart your Mac while holding down the C key.
  3. You will be guided through the installation procedure and be prompted at one point to choose which install option you want.
  4. Once the Snow Leopard install is completed the Mac will restart itself.
  5. You will probably be asked to register with Apple upon restart.
  6. Enjoy Snow Leopard on your Mac!

I have dowloaded safari and when i click on the icon it will not open


There are many versions of Safari. One for Windows and one for Mac. On the Mac there is a Tiger version, Leopard version and Snow Leopard version. You must get the correct version. Uninstall the version you have installed and then go download the version you need. http://www.apple.com/safari/ You either have the wrong version or the download was corrupt. After you install the correct version, restart your PC or Mac. It should work fine after the restart.

WE are looking for a Mac driver for the konica c350 that will work with leopard. Thanks


To save space, drivers are not a part of the package unless you have the printer connected when you install leopard. If you go backwards and either update or re-install leopard it should install the driver for you.

I Have a MAC OSX 101.5 can I install leopard


Here are the minimum specs your Mac will need to run Leopard, from Apple:
  • Intel, G5, or 867MHz+ G4 processor
  • 512 megs of RAM (though if you only have 512 megs of RAM you should get some more. Trust me, I'm a pundit)
  • DVD drive (Leopard is shipping on a DVD, and your Mac needs to read it to be able to install it)
  • 9GB of free disk space (though I bet if you customize the install and leave out all those printer drivers and extra languages you can save lots of space)
Go to your apple menu, and look on the "about this mac" If your machine doesn't have the mhz's you are out of luck. If you don't have a DVD drive, you are not going to be able to install either...
